Cities in Space - Gr. 5-12 STEAM Competition

Cities in Space - Gr. 5-12 STEAM Competition | Linking Literacy & Learning: Research, Reflection, and Practice | Scoop.it
In your classroom right now sit the future settlers and inhabitants of new worlds. The members and associates of the New Worlds Institute are dedicated to opening the space frontier in our lifetime to everyone. Beyond the boundaries of race, gender, ideological and socio-economic difference, New Worlds Institute believes in opening this new path to any and all who would like to go. In order to be prepared for the world of Free Space and colonization, the human race must consider what to do once the traveling is over and we have arrived. Space colonization on other planets, the Moon and into Free Space will require an immense amount of skills and resource but eventually, humans will be born in these colonies and the human race can thrive and multiply in a new world alive with new culture, science and ideologies in the making of great civilization.
The Cities in Space Competition coincides with the New Worlds Conference each fall where student presentations are held.  NWI is a global institute which is holding the New World Conference in Austin, TX this fall 2015.  When they are not presenting, competing students will have the opportunity to listen to speakers during the conference as well as meet scientists, engineers, NASA experts, New Space leaders and astronauts. Students will attend a luncheon and set speakers in the main New Worlds Conference room with leading scientists and space enthusiasts and conclude there as well for awards and recognition. In support of STEAM ( Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math) Education and Project Based Learning, the Cities in Space Competition is about creating a structure that can enable the human race to survive and thrive into a new civilization in space. The competition will take place onsite, during the New Worlds Conference at the Palmer Events Center in downtown Austin on October 16, 2015. Registration cost is $25 per school team.

Eileen Otero's curator insight, September 5, 2015 12:22 PM

Letting  kids manipulate objects and create what is on their minds will spark creativity and build more opportunities to make learning fun.

Hands-on experiments will create a variety of learning experiences which will enrich their ability to learn.

Starting as early as preschool, using technology and creativity will make the idea of learning with your hands a common occurrence. When children see themselves as creators instead of just students, they will carry on that view on to influence their career decisions.

Do the Math . . . Right | Edutopia.org

Do the Math . . . Right | Edutopia.org | Linking Literacy & Learning: Research, Reflection, and Practice | Scoop.it

Every year, millions of students are struggling in algebra class. And, despite what the pundits say, the answer is not to get rid of math education; the answer is to fix it.

 

Math teachers in the U.S. have the world's hardest job, because opinions about the subject are already stacked against it. Over the years, the humanness and relevancy of math have been squeezed out, and students no longer see its significance. To get students engaged in math again, we have to add the human element back.

 

Math is everywhere. The nautilus shell is nature's Fibonacci sequence. Architecture is geometry in action. Snowflakes illustrate symmetry. And even hairstyles, like African braids, show us fractals at work.1 Math is the poetry of the universe. It is time to show it that way. Let's teach math in a popular and less archaic way.

 

Let me share a dirty little secret about math education within the university: it is pretty rotten! Maybe you knew that already. What I can add is that there is no motivation to change it. University math departments have an awesome deal. They teach an often-required and often-dreaded math class for all undergraduates at the university, which justifies their existence. Since many departments are beholden to them for this service, math departments are less apt to change.2 As such, they teach math as if all students are future mathematicians, and do little to invoke the general student population with any kind of inspiration. Here lies the linchpin for our nation's poor math performance. As a result, generations of students have had bad math experiences.

 

Teaching math poorly is expensive. Colleges spend two billion dollars helping students build basic math skills.3 And those students who want to go into STEM fields often leave because of their difficulty with the math requirement. The data shows that over 60% of students who want to major in STEM fail to do so.4 The impact is especially severe for women and minorities.

 

Math classes are designed to dissuade; they are weed-out classes.4 Weed-out classes have a long yet unknown history in the U.S., which I uncovered when writing my book Save Our Science. Weed-out classes have been around since the end of the 19th century. Difficult classes were created to discourage doubtful students and identify future scientists when course offerings were limited at the advent of the elective system.5 This outdated mindset has been passed on, and many professors don’t want to change (or know how to change), because it has always been that way. Many professors have adopted the backward thinking that they don't want to "spoil" the next generation, and everyone should pay their dues. But we don't have time for that kind of foolish thinking anymore. There is too much at stake.

Student issues - I chose this resource because several of the students at my school struggle with math as our curriculum can be quite rigorous.  Several students have stated that the lessons are boring and lack efforts to encourage student engagement.  I hope to share this resource with the math teachers to encourage them to change their lessons to get their students more involved in their learning.
